Baking a chicken is an easy and affordable way to feed a crowd. After an hour of bake time, you’ll have 8 pieces of delicious chicken ready to eat at home, just like a restaurant prepares, but for much less money! We are using a simple salt and pepper seasoning in this recipe, but you can feel free to use your own favorite seasoning like lemon pepper, cajun or Italian! Enjoy!
- 1 whole Chicken (cut up fryer chicken or cut up whole chicken cut into pieces)
- Olive Oil
Pat your chicken pieces dry and rub with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place skin side up on a baking pan on top of a sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure the pieces have room between them.
Place into an oven preheated to 400°F and roast for 30 minutes. Turn heat down to 350° and roast for another 30 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165°F.
If desired, use the broiler for 5 minutes to crisp the skin of the chicken even more. Remove from oven and enjoy!
